Go Backstage With Dior
While the fashion industry waits with bated breath for the first model to emerge on the catwalk, us beauty fans will be interested in more than just the clothes. Every Fashion Week offers up a plethora of new make-up techniques, ideas and colours, and Dior is at the top of our list when it comes to beauty inspiration. From the iconic golden brows at SS14, to SS15’s pretty pastel liner, Dior’s experienced make-up artists are renowned for creating beautiful looks season after season.
The best news is, you don’t need to be a supermodel to experience the Dior treatment - the brand’s Backstage Pros collection features the exact products used at many Paris Fashion Weeks. The expert products are all designed to enhance natural beauty, and are effortlessly easy to apply and wear. Here are four of our favourites:
Dior Addict Lip Maximizer (pictured)
More than just a gloss, this plumping formula packs a powerful punch when it comes to volumising lips. And don’t worry about irritation, unlike other plumpers the non-sting formula has a refreshing peppermint tingle. We like to wear it under or over lipstick for an instant boost, but it will also restructure lips when used over a longer period of time.
Imagine an eyeshadow palette that will flatter and enhance every skin tone; Dior ticks all the boxes with this set of essential eye shades. Layer your lids with primer and subtle neutral tones before finishing with a slick of the included eyeliner.
Loved by beauty journalists and make-up artists alike, Glow Maximiser should be in everyone’s make-up kit. Wear as a primer, blend with foundation or dab on cheekbones for instant catwalk glow.
This conditioning serum base can be used as a lash primer to boost the volume of your usual mascara. You can also apply in the evening and wear overnight as an intensive treatment for your eyelashes.
